Another Strand Titan

By Dave Fratello | April 21st, 2009
There's nothing like a corner lot on The Strand, a signature MB location.

Santa Monica: No Strand. About 10 homes on the sand.

Venice: Yeah, but...

MDR/PDR: Well-kept secrets.

Redondo: Condos.

Hermosa: Second only to MB.

Yeah, we're feeling provincial because a place like 1800 The Strand justifies a little civic pride.

This 5br/6ba, 5325 sq. ft. contemporary is now on offer at $13.5 million.

That's more than $2,500/PSF, but how do you measure that location?

Nearby, a new home at 1712 The Strand (3br, 4500 sq. ft.) recently sold for $9m, about $2k/PSF, but that was mid-block. (See "The Strand for a Mil, or 10.")

1800 The Strand is, incidentally, at the junction of 2 of MBC's "Great Streets," The Strand and 18th (see "Great Streets: 18th St. (Sand)"), which the listing calls "arguably the best corner lot on the Strand."

Oh, but the listing gushes much more than that, calling this home: "Quite simply the best Strand home to ever hit the market."

Sometimes listing copy is all useless hype. Sometimes it's close to dead-on.
